    Is the hitch receiver on my '17 SR5 "class III"? Main reason I ask is that on previous trucks I have had there was "considerable" framing that the hitch was attahced to. The Tundra's looks like it is just one piece mounted in one location under the bumper. Just curious.

    The hitch attaches all the way upwards on the tundra frame probably a good 3 feet from what I recall. I think you can see it in the rear wheel wells.

    A reference from Toyota...

    Please be advised that the referenced Tundra is classified as a Class 4, and because of its mounting points, is actually rated just slightly above Class 4.

    It is through communications such as yours that we become aware of the reactions and expectations of our customers.
